good move nintendo. at first i thought "bastards!" but 3.5 seconds later i thought "hey that means less fangames!"... which is always good. ive only played 2 real fangames, they had skill in them too but still nothing on the original games.
"The most unreasonable part about it is many people worked on a Fan Game for countless and countless hours and all of the sudden there game that they put so much effort into is now taken down, even there whole website."
So someone who spends countless hours planning a bank robbery has the right to do it? Or how about a terrorist group that spends countless hours coordinating the hijacking of a plane?
I guess you never considered the fact that NINTENDO SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS MAKING ORIGINAL GAMES. They don't deserve to have their copyrighted ideas stolen. You act like the people at Nintendo are criminals, but it's quite the other way around.
Combined, they probably are. There's like eighty of the bloody things. I started playing Mario Golf on GBA last night. Super Mario Golf. What the fuck does golf have to do with Mario? You don't even play as him, you play as some little kids, none of whom have breasts. Not that Mario has breasts, but he has a devestating ass. The only other character I can think of with such a powerful ass is Astroboy. The next thing on my flash cart is probably going to be Astroboy Golf or AstroMario Breasts Advance.
I don't really care either way. If I created a game, only to have a thousand crappy fan games based on my game, I just might do something about it. So far, I haven't seen a good (or even decent) Nintendo fan game. Thus, I'm not signing no petition to bring them back.
But since this is another step towards Nintendo losing more fans and eventually going bankrupt... I'd say it serves them right. I certainly don't see them getting any profit from shutting down fan games, unless a few idiots who find them think that they reflect the real thing.

Yeh Nintendo did make the original and therfore own all rights to them.
But i mean "whats the point?" there probably gonna lose many fans by going through with this, which wont help the company but will hurt it.
Losing all Fan-Games isnt exactly a good thing, there are a few Top-quality ones in development and id say a fair amount of clickers started out wanting to recreate their favourite game.
Mario 3 had to be one of my most memorable games, grew up playing all the old NES games a kid Mario 1-3, Zelda 1-2, Duck hunt, California games e.t.c now they were the good shit, i can still remember most of the Mario 3 secrets, those were the days
I'm sure Mario Golf is wonderful. As far as golf games go. Which is about as wonderful as slamming my cock in a car door. But you're right; I wouldn't have downloaded it if it didn't have Mario's name on it.
Its simple, & strieght forword. Making fangames can be a hobby for filling spare time, but making them & expecting good comments is an entirly diffrent story. Fangames shouldnt be something people depend on proving there ability to code by making things like a full blown Sonic engine, you can do that with an original game just as easyly. Another thing, Fangames have never been something people liked playing, but only liked making, which is why there is no use to make fangame sites. Go Nintendo...
